THIRD CHARM FILMS
A one-of-its kind collective of teen filmmakers, actors, writers, and activists turning low-budget art into powerful cinematic storytelling. Our new five-part miniseries, Hetero, enters festivals in 2021.
The five-part miniseries will begin editing in Fall 2020. As the team members are in high school & college, editing will be a challenging commitment.
Five misfit friends scramble to save their school’s Gay Straight Alliance from an unsympathetic principal while facing the ups and downs of being queer in high school.
If there’s one thing that Quinn, Sarai, Zel, Mickey, and Cohen aren’t, it’s Hetero. After an outburst based around Shakespeare extreme gayness sends them to the office, they're forced to recruit the school’s heterosexual population to save their club. Selling themselves out as “gay best friends” to the school’s population, they learn about love, pride, and ultimately, how to be (or not to be) Hetero.
The five-part miniseries, composed of 20-minute episodes, entered production from July 6 to August 21. Filming was in the greater Seattle region and included 27 shooting days. While the crew does have technical means of production, expenses didn't stop there. Costs of production included:
Feeding the cast and crew for 27 days (craft services and catering)
Production insurance / COVID testing / sanitation
Media storage / Equipment accessories
Post-production plugins / mixing & mastering
